K-1 Happy Talk - January 14, 2011

We've been in school for almost 100 days.  Hard to believe isn't it.  Many students shared what they plan to make for their 100 day project. They may bring in their creations before or on Tuesday, January 25th. I'm sure they'll be all unusual and awesome displays.

Several of  our students have posts on the Teddy Bear blog.  If you would like to  read and share their experiences with our class teddy bear with your child, please click  here  . A few more students are anxious to have their pictures and their comments posted  with Keikiokekai so we'll continue to pass our bear around.

Our Skype pals in Massachusetts compiled a lovely book with adventures they'd like to have with our students. The book is being circulated among the students (in alphabetical order according to their last name) to take home and look at  with you. A parent log book  is also being sent home so you can comment on their stories.

Our newly installed Promethean  ActivBoard   is really bringing our classroom to life. It captures the imagination of all types of learners - the auditory, visual, and kinesthetic.  The children enjoy it and are more eager to participate.  They can't wait to use the activpen and write on the board!

If you have any of the following, please don't hesitate to ask your child to bring it to class:
1. Labels and packaging from food or other items for the Environmental Print wall
2. Interesting  or noteworthy pictures from the newspaper or magazines for the K-1 Buzz wall
3. Old newspaper for class activities such as painting, etc.

Everyone had a busy week learning and collaborating , but most of all, enjoying themselves.  They are truly 'Working Together'.
